Less than 60 total votes were cast in Tuesday night's Belington municipal election where one incumbent councilman was unseated.

James Lawrence narrowly defeated incumbent Jerry Phillips for the Ward I council seat, gaining 15 votes to Phillips' 11.

In uncontested races, incumbent Mayor Jody Haller received 55 votes; Marshall Reed, City Council Ward 2, received eight votes; William King, Ward III, earned seven votes; and Suzanna Skidmore, Ward IV, received 11 votes.

Belington City Clerk Susan Bradley said more than 200 voters usually turn out for municipal elections. Bradley also said there were no early or absentee voters. Election results will be canvassed Monday.
